Gulp Milk Drinks Review
We nipped into Asda last night for something for dinner, we saw these new Gulp milkshake drinks & decided to give them a go.
They had all three flavours banana, strawberry & chocolate in the fridge section, we chose a banana & a strawberry, we are not big fans of chocolate milkshakes.
I would have took a photo of the milkshake itself but I forgot & drunk it all…ooops sorry.
They are from the Arla foods who are no newcomer to the milk product world but they are newbies in the chocolate milk world a report from The Grocer written only a few months ago states how Arla “are not in it for the short term, we are not a flash in the pan” which to me is good news as their first two drinks are really tasty.
They are very thick & creamy seeing they are made with UHT skimmed milk & have long best before dates on the both stating as 04.12.2013, so great to keep for a different drink & they don’t have to be kept in the fridge! But we served ours chilled as these type of drinks always taste better & are more refreshing & room temperature milk always reminds me of the school milk we used to have to drink.
The strawberry bottle states in a mixture of fun fonts “No sip or nibble for strawberry Gulp, just gulps”
“First you shake & you shake, shake, shake & the you Gulp” with the banana saying things along similar lines
Granddad Al thought they were velvety smooth with a no sickly after taste like some other milkshakes. We found them to be very thick & creamy, unlike the Friji brand which is more of a gloop Gulp is more akin to milk in thickness and consistency, also considerable cheaper at the moment being priced at 50p for 500ml, instead of the £1.30 for 471ml for the Friji. Gulp is priced more at the can of fizzy drink price range but you are getting more than the 330ml that the can holds & is a perfect solution when you don’t want anything fizzy. Although made with UHT milk you cannot taste it hardly at all.
Would we buy them again? Yes I think we would as long as they stay at a similar price.
Here is what the chocolate looks like for your information
Skimmed Milk 85%, Sugar, Cream, Whey Protein Concentrate, Skimmed Milk Powder, Glucose Syrup, Stabilisers, Flavouring.
